I don’t know of a venue that is less than $1,000.00 but I am in Maryland and am happy to help with anything else you may need help with.

I don’t know if you have a photographer yet but I found one that is really inexpensive and has a ton of good reviews!

In the meantime, I will look into some venues for you, too.  What part of Maryland are you in?

Did you try Brookside Gardens? I don’t know what their rates are but they fit the despcription of what you are looking for.

rats!  OK how about Oxon Hill Manor?  I think it might be $2800 rental on a Friday.  Maybe less in the off season Dec-Mar.

You might want to look into a weekday wedding? See if there are any pretty barns/farm houses near you that rent out? They would probably be inexpensive.

This place seems inexpensive http://www.rockfieldmanor.com/weddings.html

And http://www.liriodendron.com/weddings.htm We almost looked here for my wedding but it was too small. I’ve heard good things though!

And I’m also from Maryland so let me know what else you need help on! :]

I didn’t do a lot of research in MD because we wanted to stay in DC (ended up in MD anyway) but your best bet is going to be the public sites all of which are beautiful.   I think $1000 rental though may be tough to meet unless you go with an early weekday rental.

I LOVE the idea of a barn wedding!  I actually really wanted to get married at a barn in Montgomery County but it was way too far for my guests to travel (I live in Baltimore).  I fell in love with this place and it is only like $600.00.

The photographer I booked is Barnyard Photography.  They cost like $1200.00 for 7 hours!  That is pretty darn cheap!  They have other packages to choose from as well.

The Tidewater Inn in Easton was $1000 for rental of their courtyard (for the ceremony) and their Brick Room for the reception for our 40 person wedding. It was about $80 per person for the menu we were considering, not including alcohol. These were quotes given to us in Fall 2010 for a Fall 2011 wedding.

Hi Larissa!

Since you are looking to pay $1000 or less for the venue, are you looking to use an outside caterer? There are places that will not have a site fee but charge per person.

Many venues have a site fee and you must use their catering. This info will help me guide you.

We got married at the Tea Room in Gambrill State Park outside of Frederick.  We rented it for two whole days (a Fri and a Sat to give us decorating/prep time the day before) for less than $400 total.  Parking for our 60 guests was another $150 (we gave extra just in case).  So it’s still well within your budget.  And the site is yours from 9 AM til 8 PM with the option of adding an extra hour or so at the end.  Mind you there will be a lot of doing it yourself at this venue.  But it comes with restrooms and a whole kitchen for caterers.  Can’t say enough nice things about the park rangers.  And the scenery could not be beat!  Our photos came back gorgeous! 

If you want waterfront, I also know there are pavilions you can rent in other state park sites towards the Eastern Shore. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.
